As said before, there is no end to the amount of money you can spend on turning. I can assure you that the lathe will cost you less than all the other things needed. The good news is most of the other equipment will be used on your next lathe. If you buy a decent midi lathe, you won’t loose much when you move up to a larger one. All of the popular names are good. Nova, Grizzily, Jet, and my favorite, Lugana to name a few will serve you well and be easy to sell. Be sure to look at variable speed and as heavy as possible. Also bandsaw, grinder, drill press, table saw, sander, etc, etc. You get the picture no end.
